I wrote about “gaslighting” in today’s newsletter – Invisible Gas Attack.
A reader in the United States asks:
“That term Gaslighting, could it be a type of hypnosis? And could there ever be a time, you feel, it could be for a good rather than just for selfish purpose? De demonization things can sometimes help them lose power so I ask.”
“Gaslighting” as I understand it, is a deliberate attack, meant to confuse, undermine and ultimately disable a person. I don’t associate it with hypnosis. I associate it with the excellent movie, “Gaslight”. Think Mars in Pisces or Mars in aspect to Neptune.
If this technique was used to disable or disarm a person with evil intent, I suppose that might be a way to use it for good.
Your mentioning “selfishness” clouds this a little for me. Because we do benefit from most things we do, whether we realize it or not.
